Stash Report

I was to the point that I needed some backing fabrics.  I have several quilts that are nearing a finish.  I thought if I took a little inventory maybe I could find some backings at Quilted Twins online store and take advantage of the cheap $5 shipping.

On my list to need backs were….The mystery quilt and my Scrap Crystals quilt.   Tulip Fields doesn’t need backing yet but when I was shopping I found a fabric I thought would be great!

Stash-Report-1

All of these quilts are entirely made of batiks so I thought I would stick with batiks for the backing.  The colors are a little muted on these but they will work great for backings.  Where else can I get such an amount of backing fabric for $5.99 a yard??

When the fabric came in the mail there was actually a box AND a package.  Hmm…maybe it all wouldn’t fit in a box.   I opened it and all of the backing fabric in the above picture were in the box.  Hmm…I didn’t remember ordering anything else….I opened the package and inside were these wonderful half yard cuts of blacks and whites.   See?Stash-Report-2

I didn’t order them…at least I didn’t remember ordering them.  I found the note ( which I thought was an invoice) inside.  It was a sweet thank you note thanking me for supporting and promoting their business.  WOW.  How nice!  I know over the last year I’ve mentioned them on the blog and told you all about their great prices and fabrics but I only did that as a “what I’m doing in my life” and “what I like” feature.  Who doesn’t love great priced fabric, speedy shipping and great shipping costs?  I only ever write about things, places or businesses that I truly like.  The gals at Quilted Twins were so helpful for Kelli and I when we needed taupe fabrics.  They helped us get just what we needed.  I guess I do end up advertising for them in away…but the Instant Pot people aren’t sending me free things…Bonnie Hunter isn’t….Audible certainly doesn’t and I promo and talk about all of them often!  (I certainly don’t expect them to either)

So now I have an awesome stack of black and white prints.  I have a couple quilts I’ll need in the next year or so for graduation gifts.  Our school colors are red, black and white.  All I need to do is raid the red stash of fabrics I have and I’ll be able to be quilting in no time.

Thanks so much ladies…I truly appreciate your generosity but more than that…I love your prices, your shipping, Becky’s free quilt patterns and your speedy service!  Once people take a chance and work with you once, you sell them on your business every time after that!!

Oh my goodness…I just opened these up.  They aren’t quarter but HALF yard cuts.  I think I can make TWO quilts for these….Now to dream up a pattern.

    WOW! How nice of Quilted Twins. I keep wanting to order from them, and even more so now. But I am sure I would have never heard of them if not for you!

    I follow them now and get their emails. The next time I need fabric I’ll definitely be checking them out!

    I am so glad you got the half yard pack! I suggested that that would be a good one for you – for who doesn’t like black and whites?

    I know I appreciate your advice, personally, Jo. Thanks for all you do for the quilting community!

    Those Batiks are yummy! I have taken your suggestion and gone to there site and I did order from Quilted Twins, there fabrics are just as you say, good quality and great price. I will shop from them again. How wonderful that they appreciated your blogging about them and sent you a goodie box. Enjoy

    I have shopped there several times due to your recommendation and have been very satisfied. As a matter of fact, I bought several of the taupe groupings to make a quilt for my sister. I put them with a black and maybe “vanilla” grunge and they really look nice. If I remember correctly, they have a red grouping now. Maybe that will go with your black and white fabrics for your graduation quilts.

    They really know how to keep customers coming back. You don’t see that kind of appreciation very often. Good for them and good for you for sending business their way.

    Oh my goodness, how thoughtful! Becky, if you see this, I’d love to know what lines those fabrics are from!! My favourite colors to work with are black, white and red so I cannot wait to see the school color quilt!!

    I’ve ordered from them too because of you. Lately, I ordered some bundles they selected for Bonnie’s mystery quilt. I’m very happy with it. You’re my favorite blogger.

    Jo, because of you I’ve become a regular customer of Quilted Twins. Word of mouth means everything to a small business.

    Another gem is Brooklyn Fabrics, and I’m not sure if I found them from your blog but, if you haven’t shopped with them online, I urge you to give them a try. Beautiful fabric with great prices and service. You get a pin with each order, and they sent me a lovely charm pack at Christmas as a thank you for shopping with them. Customer service means so much these days!

    Yes, thats all great. But they give only perks to well known people or those who have blog’s with thousands of followers. But to the average person who just buys some fabric from them would NOT get the same treatment. Which is sad. As it shouldn’t be that way, it can back firer.

    I don’t believe that’s true “M”. Quilted Twins offered specials to all who ordered over Christmas break. $25 orders got a free yard of fabric.

    Being a Christian I find it refreshing to see people showing appreciation for the good things others do for them. And I always feel better when I am looking for the good in others. Just found your website today.Looks like a good one to follow.
